Warm Up- the usual. If it’s possible, my wall walks are getting worse. I wonder if my fear of being upside down has something to do with the lunar cycle or something?
Mobility- lots of shoulder work. I needed it. The lacrosse ball is my friend.
WOD: 20 minute AMRAP
50 OH Plate Walking Lunges
25 Chin Ups
250m Plate Carry
25 Plate Sit Ups
Score: 2+41 with a 15 lb plate
I thought this was going to suck a lot, and it was actually fun. I mean, it still sucked. I totally have T-Rex arms right now and a nappy afro because after that it was damn near impossible to brush my hair, but I enjoyed it.
I think I used the right amount of weight for the plate, and I was even able to jog (YAY!!!!) the two 250s that I did. My foot was cranky, but with the extra weight I wasn’t moving very fast and it was tolerable.
The best part of the workout though was this thought:
As I was struggling through the WOD lugging around an extra 15 lbs I had a moment where I realized… not 7 months ago I was carrying that weight plate around and MORE. With what I’ve lost, I could have used the 25 lb weight plate and still not quite been equal to where I was when I started Crossfit. Every time I thought how heavy that plate was, I was so happy I almost cried when I realized that I could simply PUT IT DOWN if I wanted to. That weight was no longer a part of me.
